I love a simple craft project that I can complete from start to finish in less than 30 minutes, don’t you? This Springtime Moss Banner was one of those quick projects that I made to add a little touch of spring to my vintage window.
Ever since I acquired this vintage window from my husbands grandma’s farm I’ve been using it to decorate simple holiday vignettes. I love that it’s a sentimental piece that can have a purpose in our home, rather than just collecting dust in the garage. It’s been a spooky display for Halloween, a gentle reminder to be Thankful during Thanksgiving and Christmas wonderland, so it was definitely time for a makeover for spring.
I found these wooden banners at Michael’s and picked them up knowing I’d eventually find a use for them. A few days later while cleaning out my prop closet I found the moss table runner I used at my twins Hansel and Gretel Birthday Party and thought it would make the perfect springtime decor.
- Wooden Banner
- Moss Mat
- Hot Glue Gun
Use the wooden banner as a template and cut out the shape on the moss mat. This can be a little messy so make sure you have a table cloth down or be ready to clean up lots of moss bits.
Once you have all of the moss cut out you’ll use the glue gun and put glue on the wooden banner.
Next, attach the cut out moss to the wooden banner and gently press together.
Use a needle and string the banner on the twine and hang it on your vintage window.
I bought some fresh tulips, because nothing says springtime more than fresh blooming flowers and placed them in a vase for my springtime vignette. My sweet little Easter bunny from Target found a new place to hang out too! This is a simple little way to bring the beauty of spring into our home, and I love that it incorporates that special vintage window that was rescued from the farm!
Do you use sentimental family heirlooms to decorate for the different seasons or in your home?
